Babe’s Chicken Dinner House

Babe’s Chicken Dinner House

Babe’s is the crispy fried crown jewel of downtown Carrollton.  Simplicity at its best.  There’s no menu; just the staples – meat, sides, and biscuits.  This is the place to indulge and get heaping piles of comfort food served family style.

Choose your meat:  fried chicken, fried chicken strips, chicken fried steak, fried catfish, roasted chicken, or pot roast.  A veggie plate is available for vegetarians.

Before the fried fest begins, a green salad tossed in vinegar dressing is served.  Though fresh, it’s not their strong point.  I couldn’t get through the salad because the dressing was too sweet.  Besides, I wasn’t there for the salad!

They serve the meat stacked up on a plate like a fatty’s dream ladder.  I tried a little of the chicken fried steak and was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t mostly breading.  The meat was tender and didn’t require a steak knife.  The fried chicken was tasty – a solid seasoned crust encases the juicy meat.  You get four big pieces and it’s more than enough food.  

Don’t forget your Lipitor and/or defibrillator!

Unlimited green beans, mashed potatoes, cream gravy, heavily buttered corn, and thick biscuits balance out the meal perfectly.  There’s butter, sorghum, and honey on the table to fix up the biscuits.

I  like Babe’s.  You walk into the chicken-themed dining room and instantly feel at home.  It’s kitschy without being cheesy.  The waiters are very friendly and prompt.  I was there with 10+ people and our waitress didn’t miss a beat.  The food is good and reasonably priced.  It’s $10.99 per person if you get meat; $11.99 if you go with catfish; and $6.49 for veggies only.

If you’re craving comfort food, put on your fat pants and visit Babe’s.  It’s the perfect prelude to a nap ;)
